Need a simple corn template for the kids to do some easy crafts? We’ve got two designs for you and lots of ideas on how you can use them too!
Corn crafts are really good at this time of year as they can fit quite easily into several subjects – autumn, harvest crafts and Thanksgiving are natural fits for them. You can also use it as part of learning about healthy eating too or maybe a farm topic.
I love sharing simple templates with you that you can use with your child to help celebrate the seasons. These templates are a great way to spark your imagination or as a quick go-to when you are low on ideas but want to do something creative.
You could share some autumn or Harvest themed stories together too or really go with the theme and have some corn to eat!
You can get this template at the bottom of this page by subscribing the free Crafts on Sea newsletter, we won’t spam you and you can unsubscribe at any time – we do send details of lots of printables like this one though which are perfect for keeping your kids entertained.

How To Decorate Your Corn PDF
With two different designs available you can choose the one you want depending on what kind of activity you would like to try. If you’re stuck for ideas on how to make a corn craft why not try out one of these.
With all of these crafts you could obviously use yellow colours but try adding oranges and browns to mix it up a bit or if you use paints add a little white to it to help change the shades of yellow.
Dot Markers: Also known as bingo markers (especially in the UK) these pens have a round tip that make a circle shape, great for making sweetcorn shapes all over the main part of your plant.
Yellow Spot Stickers: These are often available in supermarkets as well as online. Using stickers is really good for fine motor skills (there’s an article here from the OT Toolbox about the benefit of playing with stickers if you haven’t read about it before.) and with their small circular shape they’re a great option for decorating your corn. You could colour in your corn first before adding these if you like.
Tissue Paper: Make this easy tissue paper corn craft, we love the feel of this one while you’re making it!
Finger Painting: Finger painting is great for activities like this because little kid fingers are kind of the right size for corn aren’t they? As long as they’re happy getting messy fingers (and you’ve got a damp cloth nearby for after) pour a little paint onto a plate and then dip fingers in it before dabbing them onto your template.
Colouring: The absolute easiest thing to set up and often one of the most popular too. Use this as a corn colouring sheet and let your child decorate it with colouring pencils.
Hole punch: Use a hole punch and scrap paper to make this simple corn craft.
Cotton Buds: Also known as Q-Tips in the US, you could dip these into yellow paint before dabbing them onto your template to make small circles over it.
